The "Veronica Mars" movie has added Ken Marino and Martin Starr to its cast. Series creator and film director Rob Thomas confirmed the casting in an email to the movie's backers.

Marino appeared in the series as private eye Vinnie Van Lowe. He last appeared in the series finale with his character running for sheriff against Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni). "Freaks & Geeks" alum Starr, who appeared in "Party Down" with Marino and several other "Veronica Mars" cast members, will play Lou “Cobb” Cobbler, "another 09’er returning for the ten-year reunion," according to Thomas.

Check out a video message from Marino below.

Marino, Starr, and "Veronica Mars" veteran Ryan Hansen were series regulars on "Party Down." Other "Mars" stars Colantoni, Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring and Darran Norris appeared on the late Starz series in guest spots.

"With Martin and Ryan involved -- not to mention Kristen, Rico, Jason and Darran -- there are moments where our set also feels like a trial run for a 'Party Down' reunion," Thomas wrote.

Thomas is a co-creator of "Party Down," a cult-hit comedy about struggling Hollywood types who worked as caterers. Talk of a reunion movie has been making the rounds for years. In March, Thomas told The Huffington Post the script for the "Party Down" movie was still in the works.

In other "Veronica Mars" movie news, Hansen recently shared this photo of himself, Dohring and Chris Lowell on set of "Veronica Mars."
